Kutztown University Daily Brief

Congratulations to Johnee Border, Financial Aid, on being named KU Employee of the Month for June 2018.

Congratulations to Johnee Border, Financial Aid, on being named KU Employee of the Month for June 2018. Johnee's nomination came from Jerry Schearer, read it on our News & Media webpage.

Nominations are collected from students, faculty and staff, and the Employee of the Month is selected by the Human Resources Advisory Council.  A winner will be selected each month and out of the 12 monthly winners one will be selected as Employee of the Year.  The Employee of the Month will receive a plaque, reserved parking and a $100 monetary gift sponsored by President Hawkinson.

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger
Weak backdoor cold front (meaning a cold front coming from the north and not the usual west) will cause us to have to reintroduce a shower or thunderstorm chance later this afternoon or evening. But don't be too disappointed. This will be no crazy rainy day like we've had so many of. Partly sunny otherwise. Highs near 90.


Aug. 30
Join campus leaders to celebrate our diversity and multicultural makeup at Unity Day at 11 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 30, on Schaeffer Lawn. The event will take place during the university's annual Community Link Fair, which brings together local businesses with the campus community.
